‘It is absurd to remove crucifixes from our classrooms, while entire neighborhoods have been taken over by sharia’

Italian politician Giorgia Meloni: “I don’t believe we ought to hide our identity, in order to respect others. Which is what leftists believe. It is paradoxical to remove crucifixes from our classrooms while accepting that entire European neighborhoods have been taken over by Islamic sharia. I don’t get it, honestly.”

“Fatherland is fundamental, Family is fundamental, and religious identity is also fundamental.”

During a debate on an Italian talk show, the leader of the anti-mass immigration party Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) and a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, Giorgia Meloni, defended her party’s support of the famous motto, God, Country, and Family. Italy’s former left-wing Prime Minster, Enrico Letta, believes the concept is outdated. Meloni, however, stressed, “Fatherland is fundamental, Family is fundamental, and religious identity is also fundamental.”

“Look, I consider myself a conservative. Let’s not forget that the motto “God, Fatherland, and Family” was thought up by Mazzini. I don’t think it clashes with modernity. What does that mean? It means to defend an identity, which is the identity of our society, a European identity,” explained Meloni.

She continued, “It means that the family is the founding core of our society, the most important social safety net we have. It means that the fatherland is the identity that brings us together.”

Meloni also spoke of the importance of Christians being proud and open about their identities:

I don’t believe we ought to hide our identity, in order to respect others. Which is what leftists believe. It is paradoxical to remove crucifixes from our classrooms, while accepting that entire European neighborhoods have been taken over by Islamic sharia. I don’t get it, honestly.

The leader, predicted to become Italy’s next prime minister under a new conservative coalition government, reminded the audience that “Christian values have molded our civilization.”

 

Sending Your Child to a Christian College?-Look Out for Words You Thought You Would Never Hear!

Two years ago, Lighthouse Trails posted an article titled “Christian Colleges and Seminaries in More Trouble Than Ever as Many Plunge Into Emergent Spirituality.” As Christian parents are preparing to send their high-school graduate kids to Christian colleges and universities this coming fall, we hope that the article (posted below) will provide a desperately needed warning. And in fact, now that contemplative schools have turned “woke” and progressive, that warning is more needed than ever. You may send your sweet child of faith to one of these schools only to watch in horror as his or her faith is turned upside down in a short period of time, and he or she may come home during a semester break and tell you the words you never thought you would hear, “Hey Mom and Dad, I am now an atheist, and I don’t believe what the Bible says anymore!”

The article:

For nearly 18 years, Lighthouse Trails has been reporting on the slide that evangelical colleges, universities, and seminaries have been taking into the contemplative/emergent/ecumenical river. It would be great if we could say there’s been a real turnaround and things at these colleges are getting better. It would be great if we could say that your college-age child is safe in most Christian colleges today. And it would be great if we could say that these schools have realized the error of their ways and have made dramatic efforts to get back on the biblical course. Unfortunately, we cannot say any of these things because they simply are not true.

We were once again reminded of how far off the track evangelical schools have gone when earlier this month we received an e-blast from Christianity Today announcing 50%-off tuition special for qualifying students to Seattle Pacific University. That will sound very enticing to parents who are looking for Christian education for their college-age children at affordable rates. But let’s take a glance at what these children will be introduced to if they attend Seattle Pacific University:

At SPU’s Center for Biblical and Theological Education, students will be introduced to various forms of contemplative spirituality, and faculty members are being trained to pass them on. For instance, in a 2019 faculty retreat syllabus, the list of activities at the retreat includes Lectio divina, praying with icons, sabbath keeping, Ignatian Spirituality, and Prayer of Examen. At the upcoming 2020 Winter Discernment Weekend, prospective students will be introduced to “Guided Prayer” and Lectio Divina. “Spiritual Formation” and contemplative spirituality are integrated throughout the spiritual infrastructure of SPU. Faculty Staff Bulletins are peppered with recommendations and accolades for Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, and numerous other hard-core mystics and panentheists.

In addition to the heavily contemplative element at SPU, you will find promotion for all things emergent such as “critical race theory” (a Marxist-leaning ideology) and the so-called “social-justice gospel” (with recommendations for social justice leaders such as Shane Claiborne and SoJourners).

For anyone who understands contemplative spirituality, these things we are sharing won’t come as a surprise because contemplative prayer is the gateway ‘drug,” so to speak, to all things emergent, socialist, Marxist, New Age, and anti-morality. And if there is one thing we hope to get across in this article, it is this: A very large number of Christian higher education institutions are now exhibiting signs that they are being influenced and directed by emergent ideologies, and many of these same schools are the ones we warned about years ago as they started down the contemplative path; the inevitable “fruit” of contemplative prayer is a drastic change in spiritual outlook (i.e., no longer resembling biblical Christianity; i.e., now emergent).

Lancaster Bible College in PA, one of the schools that have been on the Lighthouse Trails Contemplative College List for several years, continues down the contemplative path going deeper and deeper into the emergent world. For a convincing example, their Formational Leadership Master of Arts Degree program is taught by contemplative/emergent/Replacement Theology/New Missiology leader Wayne Cordiero. (More information on this program).

Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho continues incorporating emergent beliefs into the lives of its students. Some of our readers may remember our 2010 story titled “Buddhist/Universalist Sympathizer Woos Nazarene Students at NNU.” Most Nazarene universities had already been seduced by Catholic contemplative mystic Brennan Manning by then, and so bringing in a Buddhist/universalist sympathizer to NNU was just following contemplative protocol, which they have continued to do.

A few examples of NNU’s current status are the following: In the THEO4900 Religion Capstone course, The Living Reminder by Catholic mystic Henri Nouwen is one of two required textbooks. A graduate course titled COUN6594A Mindfulness Approaches uses Mindfulness and Psychotherapy for its textbook. Another graduate course (YCFM6730 Missional Ministry) uses these four textbooks— Celtic Way of Evangelism, Future Faith, Kingdom Come, and Creating a Missional Culture. In Creating a Missional Culture, the author introduces the reader to Jurgen Moltmann, Karl Barth, Marcus Borg, and several others of the same caliber (these three men are heroes of the emergent movement). In these NNU textbooks, you find the path to emergent, “progressive,” socialist, New Age “Christianity”—something that has become the hallmark for Nazarene universities today. If you attend a Nazarene church, and that church is looking for a new pastor, it would be a good idea to find out how much of his seminary/university training rubbed off on him because you can be sure, he’ll be bringing it to your church.

In 2013, we released our special report titled An Epidemic of Apostasy – How Christian Seminaries Must Incorporate “Spiritual Formation” to Become Accredited, documenting how contemplative spirituality was entering Christian colleges at an alarming rate. Fast forward to today, and many of these schools are hardly recognizable from where they were just seven years ago.

In this relatively short article, we have provided examples of just three schools. But we could give countless more other schools that began opening their doors to the contemplative element, and now are becoming full-fledged emergent schools.

When we started warning about the contemplative movement entering the church through the evangelical colleges, seminaries, and universities back in the early part of this present millennium, our warnings were brushed off and dismissed by many Christian leaders. Today, some of these same leaders are being vocal against the left-leaning, anti-God, socialistic condition of this country. But they either don’t realize or don’t care that the early contemplative pioneers that they embraced twenty-plus years ago brought that very same mindset into the church through contemplative prayer. And now, as older pastors are retiring or passing away, the new younger pastors, trained in the colleges and seminaries, have become evangelists for this anti-Gospel, anti-biblical worldview.

The Calvinist Factor

For the editors at Lighthouse Trails, and for many of our readers, we are not surprised that this paradigm shift has occurred. We have witnessed the terrible apathy and indifference by Christian leaders and many pastors for nearly 18 years. Not only has there been apathy and indifference, but there has been hostility and anger. Just last week, a pastor in Oregon who had been placed on our Christian leaders and pastors' booklet mailing list (at the request of one of our readers) called and told us to remove him from the list. He then proceeded to list off about a dozen adjectives to describe us including pugnacious, slanderous, and hateful.

We were curious about this pastor’s church and checked it out on the Internet. It was a Calvinist-promoting church. One reason we have experienced a new level of anger by some pastors and leaders is because of the book we published in 2018 warning about Calvinism (Calvinism: None Dare Call it Heresy). And this brings us to something that needs to be said in this article with regard to the direction evangelical colleges, universities, and seminaries have headed: Many Christian colleges and universities are now embracing or are in the process of embracing Calvinism and Reformed Theology.

This presents a different set of serious problems, in one respect. But as we have stated in other articles, and wholeheartedly believe based on what we have observed, many young people trained in or drawn into Calvinism end up emergent or leaving the faith altogether (such as in the case of the recent departure from the faith by I Kissed Dating Goodbye author Josh Harris).

Aside from the colleges that have historically been Calvinist and Reformed (e.g., The Master’s Seminary, Reformed Theological Seminary, and Calvin College), new ones are continually getting on board with Calvinism. A perfect example of this is Bob Jones University (historically the antithesis of a Calvinist school), which now has a Calvinist president. And then there is the Southern Baptist Convention. We estimate that as many as half of the Southern Baptist colleges and universities are now Calvinist leaning. One caller, who is a longstanding SBC member that has been in leadership positions, told us that almost all the SBC universities are now Calvinist or Calvinist influenced. A 2007 Christian Post article titled “Calvinism on the Rise” stated: “Nearly 30 percent of recent SBC seminary graduates now serving as church pastors indicate they are Calvinists.” This statistic was based on data presented at the 2006 SBC “Building Bridges: Southern Baptists and Calvinism” conference. We believe that percentage is much higher today because of the increase in Calvinism in schools. And if our theory is right that many young Calvinists will eventually become emergent or defect the faith (sometimes because they cannot handle the dismal beliefs of John Calvin and Calvinism and sometimes because they haven’t found a personal relationship with Christ through Calvinism), then the outcome is going to be disastrous.

CONCLUSION

Either way, you look at it, Christian/evangelical colleges, universities, and seminaries are in trouble. And if they are in trouble, then so are our churches because the schools are producing today’s and tomorrow’s pastors and leaders.

Our exhortation to parents and grandparents is to carefully and prayerfully choose the schools your children and grandchildren will attend. The pickings are getting slimmer every day, but your choices can potentially have eternal consequences or eternal blessings. Please don’t take it lightly.


Editor’s Note: If you know of a young person who attends or who plans to attend a Christian college, university, or seminary, please consider asking him or her to read Castles in the Sand or A Time of Departing. If you cannot afford to get one of these books, write to us at [email protected], and we will send a free copy for you to give to that college-age person. If you are wondering why we have so much concern about this, read an article we wrote in 2013 titled “Want Your Child to Become an Atheist? – Send Him to LeTourneau University in Texas (or Any Other Contemplative/Emergent School For That Matter).” It’s a true story, and tragically, it is happening too often.

Stacey Abrams Says She's Pro-Abortion Because She's a Christian

The Left loves to gaslight us, and who could do it better than Georgia’s farther-Left-than-Stalin supermodel and shadow governor Stacey Abrams? On Wednesday, Yahoo News published a new interview with the perennial media darling and renowned theologian, in which she explained that her relentless support for abortion right up until the moment of birth and maybe after that is animated by her Christian faith. You see? You conservative rubes thought that Christianity stood for the sanctity of life from the moment of conception! Aren’t we all lucky to have Stacey Abrams to make it clear to us that it really endorses the Left’s irrepressible desire to offer sacrifices to Moloch?

Abrams, Yahoo informs us, says that “her own religious faith has reinforced her pro-abortion-rights views.” Abrams intones sagely: “Abortion is a medical decision,” and you’ve got to admit, she’s got a point. Whatever else it is, it’s a medical decision, just as is the decision to give someone a lethal injection or strap him to a seat in a gas chamber. But apparently aware of how reductionist and simplistic that was, the supermodel plowed on: “It is also a decision that women make because they are not ready to be mothers… My responsibility as a legislator is to make certain that we allow doctors and nurses and medical professionals to make medical decisions and that politicians stay out of it.”

This is a common Leftist talking point: abortion is just a simple medical procedure with no moral evaluation, akin to a woman deciding to get cosmetic surgery. It’s entirely her decision, based on whether or not she is “ready to be a mother,” and that’s that. The overwhelming scientific evidence that the child in the womb is just that, a child, alive and growing and quite genetically distinct from the mother, means nothing to the “Believe the Science” crowd. Abortion advocates persistently pretend that such evidence does not exist, as if it were 1222, not 2022, and no one was actually sure when human life begins (just as no one in the smart set is sure what a woman is).

But Abrams explains that it isn’t science, but her Christian faith, that makes her pro-abortion. She is, Yahoo tells us, “the daughter of two retired United Methodist pastors,” and who could know more about Christianity than the daughter of not one, but two pastors in a church that has been widely derided as the Democrat Party at Prayer? Abrams “said her religious views are not incompatible with her belief that abortion should remain legal in states like Georgia.” See, for the Left, nothing is ever what it seems, especially religions. Islam, despite the Qur’an’s repeated exhortations to kill or subjugate unbelievers, is a religion of peace, and Christianity, regardless of its repeated avowals of the sanctity of life even in the womb (cf. Psalm 139:13-16, Jeremiah 1:4-5, etc.), is actually pro-abortion.

Abrams says this is because, above all, a Christian should never, ever, impose his or her beliefs on anyone else: “While your faith tradition may tell you that you personally do not want to make that choice, it is not my right as a Christian to impose that value system on someone else. Because the value that should overhang everything is the right to make our own decisions, the free will that the God I believe in gave us.”

Of course! Leftists are free to impose their value systems upon us ad nauseam, with drag queens in primary schools, school lunch funding withheld from schools that refuse to play along with transgender madness, and all the rest of it, but Christians must never dare to impose their views in any way, shape, or form. Note also her bland assumption — and here again, this is a common Leftist talking point — that opposition to abortion is solely motivated by religious conviction. Leftists steadfastly and universally ignore the scientific evidence regarding human life in the womb.

So Stacey Abrams, that most pious of Christian supermodels, supports abortion because God gave us free will. We also have the free will to kill, steal, and more, but never mind. This is one of the Left’s rising stars. This is one of the Left’s most formidable intellects. That’s why the Left has such an increasingly open taste for authoritarianism. They know they can’t win a rational debate with intellectual firepower of this embarrassingly poor quality.

Biden Moves to Protect America’s National Religion

Old Joe Biden’s handlers are pulling out all the stops to keep the sacrifices to Moloch going. On Wednesday, Old Joe signed an executive order that he said, “helps women travel out of state for medical care.” Biden added that Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra “is going to work with states through Medicaid to allow them to provide reproductive healthcare for women who live in states where — where abortions are being banned in that state.” The alleged president added proudly that “just yesterday in Idaho, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit to make sure that pregnant women facing serious threats to their health can get the medical care they need in Medicare-funded emergency rooms.” Abortion, it seems, must be protected and fostered at all costs, and it’s easy to see why: it’s a central element of our established religion, woke Leftism.

The First Amendment says that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” but make no mistake: we do have an established religion in the United States today. Wokeism, including sexual confusion, contempt for masculinity, erasure of femininity, hatred of children (hence the focus on abortion), and obsession with racism real and imagined (mostly the latter), is the religion that the U.S. government promotes today.

Evidence of our national religion is everywhere. There are pride flags at U.S. embassies around the world, openly “gender fluid” and transgender government officials, and fulsome praise for Leftist societal and sexual fads from officials at the highest levels, including the President of the United States himself. One thing that has become clear during the unhappy time that Joe Biden has pretended to be president is that an established religion, like religion itself, is inescapable: everyone has a religion, and every state has a state religion. Just as individuals who insist that they are atheists have some central focus and guiding force and principle in their lives — that is, something that takes the place and serves the purpose of a religion — so governments all endorse and even impose certain values. The ones ours promotes, of course, are all bad.

Biden’s handlers moved decisively to impose our established religion back on May 5, the Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) announced that it was planning to “interpret the prohibition on discrimination based on sex found in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and in the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly the Food Stamp Program (7 USC § 2011 et seq.), to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.” This new interpretation would mean that “state and local agencies, program operators and sponsors that receive funds from FNS must investigate allegations of discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation. Those organizations must also update their non-discrimination policies and signage to include prohibitions against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.” This Biden policy required schools that received federal funding for lunch programs to endorse and promote transgenderism, including allowing biological men to use women’s bathrooms. If any school refused to comply, it would be denied federal funds.

Related: Thank Abortion Radicalism for Roe v. Wade Being Overturned

That Agriculture Department decree was just one example of a myriad of ways in which Biden’s handlers were pushing the woke agenda upon the American people. On June 15, Old Joe signed what his administration called a “historic executive order” that was designed to aid in “advancing LGTBQI+ equality during Pride Month.” The White House press office stated proudly: “President Biden believes that no one should face discrimination because of who they are or whom they love. Since President Biden took office, he has championed the rights of LGBTQI+ Americans and people around the world, accelerating the march towards full equality.” To this end, the White House announced plans to end “conversion therapy,” that is, efforts to convince young people not to be homosexual, or even to convince those suffering gender confusion that they should not seek to alter themselves through surgery and pharmaceuticals so that they could pretend to be a member of the opposite sex.

The White House proudly explained that “as a candidate, President Biden pledged to help end so-called ‘conversion therapy’ — a discredited and dangerous practice that seeks to suppress or change the sexual orientation or gender identity of LGBTQI+ people. Today, President Biden is using his executive authority to launch an initiative to protect children across America and crack down on this harmful practice, which every major medical association in the United States has condemned.” This opened the possibility that those who tried to fight the prevailing gender fantasy and madness could face criminal prosecution.

Old Joe, or the shadowy figures who are actually making the decisions in his administration, was once again moving to protect America’s established religion, rewarding the orthodox and punishing the heretical and their institutions in ways that would make the heresy less appealing and put it on the road to extinction.

The most obvious objection to this scenario, of course, is that secular (and, indeed, God-hating) Leftism isn’t generally recognized as a religion at all. Nevertheless, it very much is one, as can be seen all over, for instance in the transgender pronoun fantasies and hunt for heretics who dare to “misgender” a particular fantasist and the fervor with which supporters of abortion vowed to fight against all restrictions to the practice after Roe v. Wade was overturned.

But since this secular ideology is not understood to be a religion, it is not seen as an established creed in violation of the First Amendment, as it would be in a sane polity. If it were, then the solution to it would also be found in the First Amendment, in the prohibition of such an establishment, and provisions such as school lunch money being withheld from schools that refused to indulge insane gender faddism would be seen as establishing a religion, and accordingly ended. So would federal promotion of abortion. But don’t watch for that to happen here.

Kamala Harris Goes Full Groomer, Wants LGBT Teachers to ‘Love Openly’ in Their Classrooms

It’s probably time for Kamala Harris to purge her communications staff again.

When you’re a parent, you send your kids to school thinking they’ll be taught the basics: reading, writing, math, history, and science, but if you’re Kamala Harris, you apparently want teachers to be talking about sexuality.

Below is a clip of Kamala Harris pushing the usual left-wing talking points about Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law — which she erroneously refers to as the “don’t say gay” bill.

If still calling it the “don’t say gay” bill was the worst thing she did, I’d probably have just ignored her completely, but what she said afterward was mind-blowing.

“We’re gonna stand up against a law that says ‘don’t say gay’ basically restricting kindergarten through third-grade teachers in Florida to be able to love openly and teach what they believe is important for people to understand.”

Oh, so Kamala Harris wants LGBTQ teachers to “love openly” their kindergarten through third-grade classes. Excuse me? I wouldn’t even want heterosexual teachers to do that. Why the hell does she?

She also wants these teachers to essentially boast about their sexuality and “what they believe” is important for kids to understand? Like graphic gay sex or the falsehood that men can become women or vice-versa?

Groomers in education have advocates in the White House — and that is truly terrifying.

“BAPTIST” Kamala Harris declares abortion ‘in line with Christianity’

BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS

SEE: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2022/06/kamala-harris-declares-abortion-in-line-with-christianity;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Kamala Harris is “a practicing Baptist.” The act of murdering an infant for convenience is antithetical to the Christian faith. Christianity recognizes the sanctity of life.

Deuteronomy 30:19 states: “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your children may live.”

Leftists are increasingly advancing the idea that truth is in the eye of the beholder, and there is no absolute truth. Take, for example, the Leftist advancement of gender indoctrination even of children, telling them that gender is a fluid concept. It is a fact that men do not give birth. It is also a fact that only men carry the Y chromosome, aside from chromosomal abnormalities. These are unalterable truths and realities which are scientifically proven.

To teach kids that men can give birth and there are more than two genders is harmful to children’s intellectual and psychological growth. They are being taught that it is acceptable to create their own truth.

The documentary ”What is a Woman?” is a worthwhile watch. It exposes the highly disturbing indoctrination of Western society away from reality (and from sanity). The idea that someone can create his or her own truth opens the door to lies, no matter how ridiculous or dark, being taken as reality. Without the concept of truth, the complete devaluing of humans is inevitable. How can one determine right from wrong, or truth from fantasy in the face of truth being presented as entirely subjective?

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association identifies psychosis as a break from reality. Even the World Health Organization accepts this. This leads us to the practical question of where this leaves medical professionals in their diagnosis of a person as psychotic. In the face of the gender identity activist arguments, proponents of the claim that “a man can give birth” are demonstrating a break from reality. 

Abortion is widely claimed to be a right that a woman has to her own body, although to a confused Leftist, the pregnant woman may not be deemed a “woman” at all, and pro-abortionists do not consider the violence to the child’s body.

Harris “argued that she only wants to ensure women have a choice in the matter.” Yet Leftists also hide the fact that many women are isolated and pressured into an abortion against their own will. 

“Kamala Harris argues there is no conflict between abortion rights and religious faith,” by Keith Griffith Daily Mail, June 17, 2022:

Vice President Kamala Harris has argued that there is no conflict between religious faith and support for national protections for abortion, as the Supreme Court is poised to issue a major ruling that could curtail abortion rights.

Harris, a practicing Baptist from a multi-faith family background, told reporters on Friday that she had ‘convened faith leaders’ to discuss the abortion issue from a religious perspective.

‘For those of us of faith, I think that we agree, many of us, that there’s nothing about this issue that will require anyone to abandon their faith, or change their faith,’ she said, referring to abortion.

‘It’s simply saying that the government should not have the ability to decide what an individual does with her own body — let her make that decision with her pastor or her rabbi, or whoever she consults,’ added Harris. ‘But it should not be the government making that decision.’

Harris, whose mother was a Hindu immigrant from India, was raised attending a Baptist church in Oakland, California.

She has said in interviews that she still regularly attends church and professes a Christian faith. Her husband Doug Emhoff is Jewish, making him the first Jewish spouse of a vice president.

Many anti-abortion activists do cite their religious faith in opposing the termination of pregnancies. The Catholic Church, for example, classifies abortion as a grave sin, holding that human life begins at conception and must be respected….

Kamala Harris held another meeting with abortion activists Tuesday to discuss ways to prepare for the potential end of Roe v. Wade this summer.

Harris welcomed legal and technology experts who support abortion to a roundtable meeting, signaling the Biden administration’s continued commitment to legalized abortion on demand. It is her third meeting with abortion activists since news broke in May about a leaked draft ruling showing the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe and allowing states to protect unborn babies from abortion again.

“I think we all believe and know that our nation was founded on certain principles that we hold dear: principles of freedom, liberty, and self-determination,” Harris said in her opening statement. “And I do believe that all of those principles are at stake when we look at the leaked draft opinion about what this decision may end up being.”

A White House spokesperson told The Hill that the focus of the meeting was the practical impact of overturning Roe on issues like privacy, contraception, and in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Those invited to attend included New York University School of Law professors Peggy Cooper Davis and Melissa Murray, Harvard Law School professor Glenn Cohen, UC Irvine School of Law professor Michele Bratcher Goodwin, University of Michigan Law School professor Leah Litman, leaders with the Brennan Center for Justice, and Ms. Magazine writer Jennifer Weiss-Wolf, according to the report.

A White House official told CNN that the Biden administration wants to build a strong coalition of abortion supporters to work together in response to the likely ruling.

“What’s important to keep in mind here is that some of the vice president’s goals really have been around ensuring that people in this country have an understanding of what is at stake here,” the official said. “And that does take some work in terms of building out who is the coalition of people that are affected by this, that are interested in having their voices be heard.”

These meetings also appear to be an attempt to draw positive attention to Harris, who is widely unpopular with Americans. According to CNN, “Tuesday’s event, an official told CNN, will draw on Harris’ ability to bring people from wide-ranging backgrounds together to work on specific issues.”

Last week, Harris held a meeting with pro-abortion religious leaders and, in mid-May, with abortion workers to talk about ways to keep abortions legal and available if the Supreme Court allows states to protect unborn babies from abortion again.

Harris said the Biden administration supports “unfettered” abortion – meaning the killing of unborn babies for any reason up to birth, paid for by taxpayers. She also made the baseless claim that overturning Roe would lead to banning same-sex marriage and contraception in the near future.

To Harris, unborn babies’ lives do not matter as much as “self-determination.” Harris also has claimed that aborting an unborn baby is about the “right to live and love.”

Harris’s position on abortion is radical and out of touch with most Americans. A former U.S. senator, she co-sponsored a bill that would have forced states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions for basically any reason up to birth, even if Roe is overturned, and forced taxpayers to pay for them.

Since Roe in 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers have died in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions.

It appears the Supreme Court likely will overturn Roe this summer after a leaked draft shows the justices ruling against the 1973 decision in the Mississippi case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. If that happens, states will be allowed to protect unborn babies again, and experts predict as many as 26 will do so. This would result in hundreds of thousands of unborn babies being saved from abortions every year.

Today, Vice President Kamala Harris held a roundtable in Los Angeles, California with faith leaders to discuss some of the most urgent challenges facing our communities, including protecting reproductive rights and addressing the epidemic of hate that is gripping our nation.
 
Attendees discussed the importance of protecting access to reproductive health care, preserving the right to self-determination for individuals and families, and working together to chart the path forward. The Vice President affirmed the key role faith leaders play in bringing people together to move our country in the direction of justice, and she highlighted the constitutional rights affirmed in Roe, including the right to privacy, which protects the right to use contraception, and the freedom to marry the person you love.
 
Participants underscored the importance of ensuring that health care decisions are made by women without government interference, and the need to work together as a coalition to safeguard this right. The Vice President raised that the Louisiana legislature passed a bill that would ban abortion even in cases of rape and incest, saying the bill illustrates that there is a clear and imminent threat to the shared principle of allowing women to make decisions about their own bodies.
 
During the conversation, the Vice President also raised the issue of gun violence that has been plaguing our nation. The Vice President thanked the faith leaders for the important role they play in working toward healing, hope, and unity in their congregations and communities.
 
The Vice President affirmed that faith leaders are essential partners to the Administration and that she looks forward to continuing to work with them to build coalitions across faiths.

Participants included:

  • Pastor Demetries Edwards, Pastor, 23rd Avenue Church of God (Oakland, CA)
  • Rabbi Dara Frimmer, Senior Rabbi, Temple Isaiah (Los Angeles, CA)
  • Rev. Edgar Boyd, Senior Minister, First AME Church (Los Angeles, CA)
  • Nitasha Kaur Sawhney, Sikh civil rights advocate, and lawyer (La Cañada, CA)

Yes, Real Men Still Exist: Watch Them Stand Up for Children Being Dragged Into Dallas Grooming Event

ALLIE BETH STUCKEY: Republicans Should BAN Child Drag Shows

Today we're talking about the disturbing events that are happening all across the country right now in the name of "Pride Month," namely drag shows targeted at kids. Even red states aren't safe from this depravity, as evidenced by viral videos of one of these shows taking place in Dallas, Texas. To help us understand what's going on and what kind of parent would drag their kid to such an event, we welcome journalist Tayler Hansen to the show. Tayler filmed one of the videos that's going viral right now and also spoke with parents and kids at the Dallas show.

Whenever I see a child who has clearly been corrupted by adults with LGBTQ agendas, I get angry at the kid’s father. Did he abandon his children to the full-time attention of a deranged mother? Is he present but too whipped to be a strong father? What man would allow such a thing to be done to his son or daughter? Yes, the mother enrages me as well, but a society in which real men exist would never allow the over-the-top grooming and wholesale destruction of childhood innocence that goes on these days.

Real men are protectors. They instinctively defend the vulnerable and the innocent. And thankfully, they still exist in the United States.

A recent example of real men in action occurred at a disgusting grooming party in a gay bar called Mr. Misster (get it??) in Dallas, Texas. The bar held an event called “DRAG THE KIDS TO PRIDE – A Family Friendly Drag Show” on Saturday. While most of us understand that a drag show fundamentally cannot be a family-friendly event, Mr. Misster thinks it’s just fine:

Mr. Misster’s Drag The Kids To Pride Drag Show provides the ultimate family friendly pride experience. This signature event is a family friendly spin off of our famed Champagne Drag Brunch, with our resident DJ Charlie Phresh playing some of your favorite hits while host Nicole O’Hara Munro brings together some of the best drag entertainers around! Our under 21 guests can enjoy a special Mr. Misster Mocktails while the moms and dads can sip on one of our classic Mr. Misster Mimosa Towers. Do you want to hit the stage with the queens? We have FIVE limited spots for young performers to take the stage solo, or with a queen of their choosing! Come hangout with the Queens and enjoy this unique pride experience, fit for guests of all ages!

The show was just as horrible and inappropriate for children as you would imagine. Men cross-dressed in sexually charged costumes and danced inappropriately for children, whose parents encouraged them to hand the performers money — just like at an adult strip bar!

Then the children were made part of the act. First, they were brought on stage to play a game of musical chairs while a dragged-out emcee called the shots and the audience whooped and cheered:

Once the children were comfortable being the center of attention, it was time for the next step in the groomy progression. Kids were invited on stage to catwalk with the performers. “Who wants to be a diva for the day?” asked a drag queen, as several kids joined him.

All of this occurred in front of a large neon sign that read, “IT’S NOT GONNA LICK ITSELF.” (Relax! It’s just an ice cream sign! Tee hee.)

As you may have noticed, none of this is okay. But even though most people have been bullied and browbeaten into silent acceptance if not approval, brave protestors showed up to stand up for the children and decry what was being done to them. Among them were plenty of real men, and it was glorious to see their righteous anger and moral strength in action as they called out the sick adults.

Watch Texas-based YouTuber and political commenter John Doyle, flanked by a diverse group of manly men, as he confronts the deranged adults dragging their kids into emotional disorders pride:

My favorite quote: “Your kids aren’t actually gay, you just groomed them.”

Here are some more men in action. I especially love the second guy. Step aside and let the man go through! He’s just trying to walk down the damn street! (Serious language warning — this guy is miffed!)

Comedian and political activist Alex Steyn followed a drag dancer out to his car and took him to task for corrupting children.

There were real women protesting the corruption of children as well, but this article is a shout-out to the men who are stepping up to protect kids and call out evil. So a word to the single ladies out there: don’t despair — real men still exist. If you don’t have any in your town, maybe you should check out Dallas!

In the past, I always enjoyed gay parades, dance clubs, and drag dressers in and around New York City. But that was a long time ago. Once the rainbow mafia started going after kids, they crossed the line. Those who target children are predators, abusers, and corruptors of innocence, and they deserve every bit of scorn and contempt society can heap upon them.

Disney Employee Rips Company’s “Grooming” & War on Faith, Family

Disney doubled down on the "woke" agenda and the sexualization of children, even to the point of being dishonest about Florida's efforts to protect students, veteran Disney employee Nick Caturano told The New American magazine's Alex Newman in this episode of Conversations That Matter. Asked why Disney executives are doing this, Caturano said they were seeking to "create" culture and push the envelope. The goal is to undermine the strong families and faith that keep a nation together. "They are chipping away at everything that's good, at the innocence of children," Caturano said.

(Natural News) Girls as young as 13 are increasingly opting to slice off their breasts as part of an LGBT push to turn more American children into transgenders. And the Biden regime is largely to blame for this horrific trend.

Thanks to years of grooming at government-run public schools, American kids today are less concerned about enjoying their innocence and more focused on cutting off their genitals and taking gender-bending pharmaceuticals in order to join the ranks of the “rainbow” cult.

On their own, innocent children would never dream up perversions like this. Evil adults, many of them demon-possessed, are the ones responsible for turning the United States into Sodom and Gomorrah – and their demonic work has only just begun.

The below video from The Western Journal explains how the Biden regime (meaning the Obama regime, since Barack appears to be the one truly running things) is largely responsible for the trans-ification of America into a nation of Baphomets:

Since 2017, the percentage of American teens wanting to become transgenders has more than doubled

School curriculum, media programming, government messaging, and corporate propaganda are all contributing factors as well to the swift decline of America’s youth.

The end result of all this grooming is confusion, followed by pressure and even a desire to follow the script straight into “transitioning,” which is what increasingly more children these days are doing.

In 2017 when Donald Trump first became president, only about three or four out of every 100 American teens expressed interest in becoming transgender. By 2021, that number had more than doubled to nine in 100 children.

One can only imagine what the figure is currently as things accelerate exponentially.

“These children have been groomed to believe the idea that if they don’t feel quite right socially if they don’t fit in for one reason or another, they might be trapped in the wrong body,” writes Michael Austin for The Western Journal.

“Because of this, many kids who suddenly identify as trans are experiencing social awkwardness, going through puberty and/or suffering from social development disorders such as autism and ADHD.”

It is perfectly normal for young people to experience confusion about who they are as they develop from childhood into puberty. What is not normal is them having perverse adults all around trying to convince them that this points to transgenderism.

“These children are being groomed to believe that the normal stresses of childhood can be solved through gender transitioning,” Austin adds. “They’re told that if you don’t feel right in your own body, the only way to feel whole is to mutilate that body to better fit the opposite gender.”

The Biden regime and leftists call this “gender-affirming care,” but nothing could be further than the truth. Instead of affirming children in their natural-born genders, perverse adults are telling them that they must affirm a different gender than the one that matches their anatomy.

Again, this is called grooming, and the Bible warns that people who engage in such are better off having a millstone tied to their neck and getting tossed into the ocean, as opposed to the judgment they will face at the hands of an angry God.

“Children need to learn how to tie their shoes and they need to be taught about math and reading, not the strange sexual ideologies of political activists,” Austin says.

“If you disagree, if you believe this sort of political and sexual grooming should be permitted in a classroom full of young children, there’s only one thing left to say: OK, groomer.”

(Natural NewsNBC News and PBS News correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, a black woman, is livid over the revelation that the Supreme Court is planning to overturn Roe v. Wade.

According to Alcindor, “women of color” like herself will now “be forced to have pregnancies that they cannot afford.” And the worst part, she says, is that “they will then turn into children” – oh, the horror!

Like many other leftist women, Alcindor apparently believes that protecting children in the womb is one of the worst things that could ever happen. She said that the news is “like someone has died” – a funeral, if you will, for legalized abortion.

Alcindor made a trek to the Jackson Women’s Health Organization in Mississippi, an abortion clinic that is at the center of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the SCOTUS case that prompted all of this.

“While conservatives are celebrating the possible end of Roe v. Wade, some women here tell me they feel ‘gutted,’ ‘devastated,’ and ‘like someone has died,'” Alcindor tweeted.

Overturning Roe v. Wade will also overturn “gay marriage,” Alcindor suggests

Alcindor proceeded to tell fill-in host Kristen Welker that “while women are getting the service that they need today, and they’re getting abortion today, their question is how long?” the implication being that we should all feel sorry for these poor women who do not want their babies.

Perhaps they should have thought about that before getting pregnant in the first place. Then they would not “need” to get this “service,” and there would not be a pity party on the Left about potentially losing access to the procedure.

“As is the case with most of the media coverage on the issue, notice how liberal journalists never show an ounce of concern for and compassion towards the babies whose lives are ended,” writes Curtis Houck for mrcNewsBusters.

In Alcindor’s debased opinion, the Supreme Court is out of touch with the average American woman, who apparently hates children so much – and also hates using birth control – that having to bear one after engaging in irresponsible sexual behavior is the worst thing that could ever possibly happen.

“They’re saying … women here are going to be put in danger because they’re going to be forced to have pregnancies and have children that they simply cannot afford, or that they simply do not want that it’s not their choice anymore,” Alcindor went on to complain.

In her view, people “on the ground” want unlimited access to abortion, but politicians are “talking about legislation and talking about what could come next,” meaning no more legalized abortion.

Somehow, the overturning of Roe v. Wade will also affect “gay marriage,” according to Alcindor. Welkner, upon hearing this suggestion, agreed with Alcindor.

Alcindor also talked about “privilege,” claiming that one woman getting an abortion walked up to her with “tears in her eyes and said that she went up to the volunteers to thank the – thank them for their work because she said her as a woman who’s an attorney who has the means and resources that she’ll always be able to get an abortion because she’ll be able to fly to one of what they’re calling the 13 Safe States.”

The United States is being split, in other words, into pro-abortion and pro-life states. And only the “privileged” will be able to cough up enough cash to travel elsewhere to get an abortion if they live in a “red” state.

“Mississippi as a state doesn’t have a lot of safety nets, that the women who are going to be forced to have these children, they’re going to have a really hard time trying to support those children,” Alcindor added.

Pro-Homosexual Group Coming To Nazarene Theological Seminary May 10-12

Anderson McGee, Co-Executive Director of Love Wins.:LGBT, shares the story of his journey as it relates to his faith and sexuality.

TRINITY FAMILY MIDTOWN CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE

SEE: http://www.eventcreate.com/e/lovedtoloveconference

Within the theological structure of the cults there is considerable truth, all of which, it might be added, is drawn from biblical sources, but so diluted with human error as to be more deadly than complete falsehood.”  ― Walter Martin, Kingdom of the Cults

Pro-Homosexual Group Coming To Nazarene Theological Seminary May 10-12

If the hosting of a pro-homosexual group at a seminary does not bother the conscience of a member of the Nazarene denomination, then perhaps nothing will.  If my Nazarene friends remain silent because of this story, then they could well remain silent for anything else. If the reaction of anyone reading this is to condemn or rebuke me or anyone else for exposing evil, then you have some serious praying to the Lord to do. And if a Nazarene pastor reading this decides to remain silent, then perhaps he ought to give up his credentials and stop preaching.

Recently, it was a pro-same-sex marriage theologian, Willie James Jennings, spoke at an event sponsored by Nazarene Theological Seminary (NTS). Jennings is a theologian who is in favor of same-sex marriage. Homosexuality is an abomination according to God’s word, but that did not stop the seminary from bringing in a speaker who rejects Holy Scripture.

Love Wins LGBT Scheduled To Be AT NTS on May 10-12, 2022

In the link at the end, you will see that the seminary is now welcoming an organization (Love Wins LGBT) that is pro-homosexual.  And once again I ask, “where is the leadership?”  This all is happening right under the noses of those who are charged to guide the denomination spiritually. Is it possible that some of them actually approve of this abomination? And as you will see, former General Superintendent Jesse Middendorf is right in the middle of the movement to normalize homosexuality in the Church of the Nazarene.

Love Wins LGBT is a group that claims to be a Wesleyan-Holiness movement, but it is not.  It is a façade, a charade. It is a group that I believe is pushing for the normalization of homosexuality within the Church of the Nazarene. The leader of Love Wins: LGBT is Andy (Anderson) McGee, who is “pastor” of Trinity Family Mid_Town Church of the Nazarene in Kansas City, KS. I have written several posts about this “pastor” and his pro-homosexual agenda.

Andy has supported gay activists who promote same-sex marriage, praised a “gay Christian” conference, praised a racist organization, praised the National Coming Out Day, and has testified that he is bi-sexual. When you study more and more of his ministry, you will notice that there is never any mention of Jesus Christ helping those in the homosexual community to be freed from their slavery to homosexuality. You can read more about Andy and his methods here and here.

In this podcast, listen to Andy McGee’s version of his “gospel”: Anderson On Being Queer In Ministry (with Bekah)

Note the following excerpt from an announcement by Andy’s ministry:

Love Wins: LGBT is officially partnering with Praxis (formerly known as the Center for Pastoral Leadership) at Nazarene Theological Seminary to bring this conference to life and help ensure that the information shared at the conference is available to anyone who desires access to it.

In February of 2022, NTS officially relaunched the CPL with the name “Praxis” – a term used to describe a church’s ongoing life that moves between study/reflection and engagement/action; each movement informs the other. This strategic renaming broadens the CPL’s scope to better serve the life of the Church in the 21st Century.

Nazarene Theological Seminary’s vision to provide lifelong learning and encourage leadership in the local church became a reality with the formation of the Center for Pastoral Leadership in 2014. Under the leadership of Dr. Jesse Middendorf and the Rev. Dana Preusch, the Center has provided thousands of hours of lifelong learning and thoughtful resources, events, and support to Nazarene clergy in the USA/Canada region and beyond. Praxis will build on and expand this work.

Once again, one of the usual suspects in this movement to normalize homosexuality within the Church of the Nazarene is Jesse Middendorf, a former General Superintendent. To think that a man who was in the highest office of the Nazarene denomination has been one of the leading promoters of Andy’s “ministry” should be quite concerning.

A notable speaker at the conference is Antonie Holleman, District Superintendent of the Netherlands District Church of the Nazarene.  The Holland district has already been shown to have churches that bless same-sex unions.  A few years back, I sent a warning to the General Superintendents about this, and about a Nazarene pastor in that district who admitted to blessing same-sex unions. I never got a response, and as far as I know, that pastor is still active in the district. See my report here.

This movement is not new.  I recall in the General Assembly at Indiana, in 2013, when I attended a session run by Andy. A Nazarene pastor at the end of the session spoke accurately and faithfully of how Christ can change anyone from whatever wrong lifestyle that dishonored God.  I recall yelling out “Amen!” after he spoke, and I was met with disapproval by several people around me, including some Nazarene pastors. The state of the denomination is most likely worse now than it was back then.

Will there be any righteous voices speaking out amongst the leadership of the church?  I believe there are some, but there needs to be more. But if this ignoring of the situation continues on, it will spell doom for a denomination that says much about holiness, but surely is not doing enough of a job of rebuking those who are “lovers of themselves” and who worship the created instead of the Creator.

Personal Thoughts

I am not trying to convince Nazarenes to leave the denomination. I don’t even have as much time as I used to have.  I simply want to encourage them to do the right thing. The right thing may be different for each person, but the wrong thing is to ignore it all. Perhaps you will have had enough, and leave the denomination.  Perhaps you are part of a faithful Nazarene church, and you won’t abandon faithful pastors.  Perhaps you will join the fight and try to bring the denomination back to its holiness roots, which it seems to be abandoning. But why would you want to remain silent and allow the church to slide more into heresy?

In Galatians 4:16, the Apostle Paul asked the churches in Galatia a question. “Have I, therefore, become your enemy because I tell you the truth?”  What good does it do if someone has cancer, but the doctor does not say a word about it to the patient?  Why are some Nazarenes determined to protect the reputation of a denomination that is proclaiming holiness on the outside, but inwardly is rotting with spiritual cancer?

In Galatians 1:6-10, the Apostle Paul writes about what is going on within the church:

I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

When Ezekiel was charged by God to warn the people about any coming danger, the Lord clearly stated the consequences.  If Ezekiel would listen to God, and warn the people, he then would not be held responsible if the people perished.  But if he failed to warn the people, and one single person perished, he would be held equally responsible for failing to do his duty. That is what I am doing, and others are doing as well.  We are being faithful by warning the people of the danger.

I’ve been rebuked and condemned by some Nazarenes for distributing negative information (warning the people) about things going wrong in the Church of the Nazarene. So have many others who are still Nazarenes who have been warning others within the denomination. Instead of raising the alarm, or contacting those in leadership to ask questions, many Nazarenes are treating the messengers as if they are doing something un-Christian!

Many Nazarenes are either turning away to a different gospel, or they are totally ignoring the danger.  They seem to say “as long as it’s not in my backyard or church” then I don’t care. Meanwhile, apostate pastors-to-be are being groomed at Nazarene Theological Seminary to lead more sheep astray.  They will be wolves in sheep’s clothing, leading many to hell because of a false gospel.  And the Nazarenes who refuse to learn biblical discernment will be spiritually shipwrecked.

In Proverbs 27:6, the writer states that “Faithful are the wounds of a friend,
But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”  Would you rather be lied to?  Or would you rather know the truth?

"We Don't Need to Wait for Jesus Christ" In Order to Overcome Death

(Natural News) One of the brains behind The World Economic Forum (WEF), is the self-proclaimed prophet, Yuval Noah Harari. He believes in the Great Reset, transhumanism, culling the population, and using a global government to control humanity at the bio-metric level. He is praised by Bill Gates, Barack Obama Mark Zuckerberg, and Klaus Schwab, leader of the WEF.

Harari talks about “useless human beings” who do not have meaning or purpose. He said the greatest fake news is the Bible. He said Christianity is wrong, that humans are here on Earth for “nothing.” “Jesus Christ is fake news,” be balked. He believes there is “no great cosmic plan” that humans have a role to play in. Instead, he views humans as “useless eaters” who can be hacked and manipulated using digital surveillance under their skin.

He also believes in culling the population. “What do we need so many humans for?” he is quoted as saying while promoting his latest book.

Meet Yuval Noah Harari, a trans-humanist who wants to hack and manipulate human populations

In a recent interview, Harari said the world is entering a new industrial revolution, but the products will not be physical goods. Harari said science, technology, and industry’s greatest challenge of the 21st century will be “to try to gain control of the world inside us, to learn how to engineer and produce bodies and brains and minds.” He says these are likely to be the “main products” of the 21st-century economy.

He said, “Once you know how to produce bodies and brains and minds so cheap labor in Africa and South Asia, it simply counts for nothing.”
“The biggest question in maybe economics and politics of the coming decades will be what to do with all these useless people,” he said with a straight face. He said technology will ensure that everyone is fed, so “food is not the problem.”

“The problem is more boredom, and what to do with them, and how will they find some sense of meaning in life, when they are basically meaningless, worthless.” He prescribed drugs and computer games as solutions to entertain “useless” people’s brains.

He said a global government will collect and use data on every person to learn how to engineer bodies, brains, and minds. He says data and biometrics will be used to hack human beings and re-engineer the future of human life itself. He said, “intelligent design” never existed and any notion of a Creator God will be driven out of society, as humans become hackable, programmable. Harari even claims that the laws of natural selection and organic biochemistry will be eliminated and replaced by a trans-humanist future, where humans become hackable animals, manipulated and controlled.

“We have the technology to hack humans on a massive scale,” he said. He added crises should be exploited to implement more surveillance throughout society so “elites” can monitor, collect data, and engineer the future trajectory of human life. Much of this surveillance will “come under the skin” as biometric data become a pathway to manipulate human populations. Harari said we already have the ability to go under the skin and collect biometric data, allowing “elites” the power to re-engineer life itself. “We are upgrading humans into gods,” he said.

He said in an emergency, people trust the “scientists.” He used the example of priests and ministers shutting down their churches worldwide in 2020 to prove that God is dead. Going forward, people will put their faith in the scientific elite and global government, he balked. “Even the religious leaders trust the scientists,” he said.

Much like the Pope, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby uses Christianity to justify open borders — ie. breaking the law and illegally entering sovereign countries. Yet also like the globalist Pope, Welby is surrounded by personal security, and whoever enters his own personal domain is carefully vetted. He is also financially well cared for, unlike so many Britons, who are now saddled with the price tag of accommodating illegals— from feeding them and housing them to providing medical services, and when needed, heightened security services to protect citizens, given the disproportionately high incidents of crime committed by illegals.

A couple of years ago, a sensible cardinal opposed the woke leadership of the Catholic Church. Cardinal Robert Sarah — prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments — compared “the modern influx of Muslim migrants to the invasions of barbarian tribes that ultimately brought down the Roman Empire in a.d. 475.” Sarah also issued a warning which contradicted Pope Francis. He cautioned that “it is a false exegesis [interpretation of scriptural text] to use the Word of God to promote migration. God never wanted these rifts.” But this is precisely what Pope Francis has been doing, along with the Anglican Welby: abusing their positions and acting as blind guides in preaching that it is un-Christian to oppose illegal, mass Muslim migration into Europe.  

“Woke Anglican Archbishop Uses Easter Message to Attack Border Controls,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, April 17, 2022:

Archbishop Justin Welby, the de facto head of the Church of England, has used his Easter message to attack British government plans to transfer some male boat migrants to Rwanda while their asylum claims are processed, claiming the policy “is the opposite of the nature of God”.

In a highly political “sermon” preached at the service of Holy Communion at Canterbury Cathedral and broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Sunday morning, the woke archbishop loosely linked the resurrection of Jesus Christ to a number of contemporary political issues he is interested in, including the conflict in Ukraine, “the rising cost of power, fuel, and basic food”, and, of course, immigration.

“[T]his season is also why there are such serious ethical questions about sending asylum seekers overseas,” the Archbishop of Canterbury claimed, referring to the Boris Johnson administration’s plans to finally do something about the ever-worsening boat migrant crisis by striking a deal with Rwanda, a safe third country, to host some male asylum seekers while their asylum claims — often bogus — are processed.

“The details are for politics and politicians. The principle must stand the judgement of God and it cannot,” declared Welby, who himself has a direct role in lawmaking as a member of the House of Lords.

“It cannot carry the weight of resurrection justice, of life conquering death. It cannot carry the weight of the resurrection that was first to the least valued, for it privileges the rich and strong,” he went on, without offering a clear explanation as to how paying Rwanda to host people who illegally enter British territory from France — a safe European Union member-state — is an exercise of “privilege”….

For the Walt Disney Company, there appear to be limits to how woke they’re willing to be.

The company recently announced an end to recorded park greetings to “boys and girls” and “moms and dads” in favor of more “gender-neutral” greetings.

But when it comes to chasing the almighty dollar, Disney is just another greedy, capitalistic, exploitive business uninterested in gender-neutral anything.

The company still offers its “princess packages” for hotel occupancy, park admissions, and other add-ons to please all the non-woke parents who still want to visit the park.

Fox Business:

According to its website, Disney is still touting the “Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique” experience that dresses kids up as the historically gendered roles of “knights” and “princesses.” The experience, temporary unavailable due to pandemic restrictions, is still touted on the company’s website.

The Magic Kingdom did not respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment as to why Disney is still promoting the gendered experiences while nixing gendered terms outright in their theme park greetings in the name of inclusion.

The company has yet to say if it will continue to use the gendered terms “princes” and “princesses” as the company halts the use of “boys and girls.”

As with companies that profess fealty to green activism, the business will be only as woke as their bottom line allows them to be.

There is developing tension between the real world of boys, girls, moms, dads, and the fantasy world where there are no genders, only “inclusive” prototypes. How can Disney — a company built on the idea of a talking mouse, a magic kingdom complete with castle, and a film empire that includes a sleeping beauty being rescued by a handsome prince — survive when it offers a “reality” different from the one that millions and millions of their customers live in?

We used to call it “make-believe,” and the Disney experience is still a healthy outlet for a child’s imagination to expand. But will Disney allow it going forward? Is it more important to cater to the whims of the woke than nurture and care for a child’s inner voice?

Is that all to disappear when the “new Disney” takes over from the magical world of princesses, princes, kissable frogs, and singing crickets?

Is there no room left for pure magic, unsullied by politics?

Not the direction Disney is going.

 “We don’t want to just assume because someone might be, in our interpretation, may be presenting as female, but they may not want to be called ‘princess,'” Ware said during the video conference call. “I love the fact that it’s opened up the creativity, the opportunity for our cast members to look at that.”

Being creative about gender? So sad. So very sad.
